Nintendo® Plans new 3D Super Mario Game, Announces AT&T, Netflix Collaborations

Nintendo is getting ready to launch a new Super Mario 3D game for its Nintendo 3DS portable system. Not only are they going to be announcing this new game, but they are also going to be announcing two upcoming collaborations. The first will be with AT&T, that will allow game users access to over 10,000 Wi-Fi Hot Spots. While some consumers will be enjoying the wireless connection, Netflix members can also enjoy streaming both movies and other content on their Nintendo 3DS systems.

Nintendo 3DS is scheduled to launch, in the U.S., on March 27. It will be retailing for a suggested price of $249.99. One of its most interesting features is that it gives users the ability to view 3D content without the need for special 3D glasses. The new Super Mario 3DS game will feature the traditional Mario™, and is expected to bring true depth and distance to the game experience. This new game was created by the same team that created Super Mario Galaxy™ and Super Mario Galaxy 2 for the Wii ™.

Nintendo plans to provide their 3DS owners with a wireless system update that will activate the Nintendo eShop, allowing users access to additional features. This update feature will be provided to users at the end of May. It will also provide solutions for Nintendo DSi™ and Nintendo DSi XL™ owners to transfer their Nintendo DSiWare games to the new Nintendo 3DS systems.
